The School of Classics at the University of St Andrews encourages applications for PhD entry in September 2018 under the SGSAH (Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities) scheme.
The SGSAH is run by a consortium of eight Scottish universities. Students from the UK and the rest of the EU are eligible for scholarships. Successful applicants will benefit from fees, stipend (UK residents only) and significant additional funding for their doctoral training. Students from EU countries other than the UK are eligible for a fees-only award; the UK government has confirmed that the funding award, for EU students starting in 2018, will cover the duration of their course, even if the UK leaves the EU in that period.
The first step is to apply for the PhD programme at St Andrews. The deadline for applications to Classics at St Andrews under the SGSAH scheme is 20 DECEMBER 2017, but candidates are encouraged to contact potential supervisors as soon as possible in order to leave time to refine the application to the SGSAH.
The University of St Andrews has various additional sources of funding for PhD students:
- Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarships, the deadline for which is 15 November 2017.
- St Leonards Interdisciplinary PhD scholarships. These are for projects involving more than one School at St Andrews. To be considered for this award you should submit a PhD application by 5 November 2017.
- St Leonards Scholarships (International Fees). These will cover the difference between home and international fees. To be considered for this award you should submit a PhD application by 25 January 2018.
For each of the three schemes above the first step is to apply for a PhD place at St Andrews.
Further sources of funding will be announced later in the academic year.
We invite potential applicants to consult individual members of staff about their proposed research topics.
